5 Gifts for Beauty Lovers

The holidays are just around the corner, and that means scrambling to buy gifts for loved ones. Just looking through the “gift” section of Sephora is enough to make your eyes water, so I’ve selected the best of the best sets, palettes, and other gifts for the beauty lover in your life.


Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette

$62 USD

This is a limited edition release for the holidays, and I’d recommend snapping it up fast. It features a new highlighter formula from Hourglass, and the powders feel like literal velvet. They have a smooth, glossy-looking finish on the skin as if they were a cream, but they have the longevity of a powder. The three shades will adapt to any skintone and mix together to create more beautiful shades.


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick Set

$15 USD

One of my favorite releases this year was the Bite Beauty Liquified Lipsticks, and now you can get a set of the cutest minis in four flattering shades. You get a nude, a neutral, a berry, and a red, so they have all bases covered. The formula is extremely comfortable and unique to many liquid lipsticks on the market. Rather than drying to a flat, dehydrating matte, they maintain a sheen and have a comfortable satin finish. It’s perfect for the lipstick junkie in your life.


Colourpop Polite AF Super Shock Shadow Collection

$30 USD

Who else is excited about Colourpop being at Sephora? This set is great for someone who’s just getting into eyeshadow. The Super Shock Shadow formula is one of my favorites for everyday, as they make for the perfect single-eyeshadow looks and are easy to apply with fingers. This set includes six wearable shades, from taupe to copper to burgundy, that will look beautiful on their own or paired together.


Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette

 $95 USD

For someone looking for a little more luxury, this palette includes every eyeshadow you’d need for neutral looks that go from subtle to dramatic. The palette is split into four sections, Day, Desk, Date, and Disco, to make pairing shades and creating a look easier, although mixing shadows from different sections will result in beautiful looks as well. Charlotte Tilbury never disappoints, and every product feels like a truly special treat.


Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipstick

$38 USD

Speaking of luxury, I’m sure a true lipstick junkie would be thrilled to receive one of these sought-after lipsticks. The whole product is an experience in itself, from the outer packaging, to the tube, to the formula of the lipstick. These have the best formula I’ve ever tried in a lipstick - they simultaneously manage to be incredibly pigmented while feeling weightless, and they’re comfortable while still lasting all day. For a nude-lover pick something like the shade Realness, and for a more bold look, Wrecked.
